they forget that dick cheney wanted to put him on the terrorist list and insisted he stay there. that ronald reagan resisted. he said on the one hand that else in. mandela should be released, but he depended on a white supremacist government to reform itself from within. >> and the issue, mar where? >> when will you ever get tired of beating up on darth vader, who said nelson mandela is a good man. as we saw in the earlier segment, it was a complicated situation. the anc was a terrorist organization at one point. he has since said great things about nelson mandela. i like that what's been said about nelson mandela is said in the same way the pope said what he did. forgiveness and redemption. the pope's widely misinterpreted. and mischaracterized statements. it's active engagement. taking care of each other with solidarity and subsidiary. >> when you say about accusing darth vader, so to speak. this is not just about rhetoric. this is the policy that prevented the anc -- when they had the feet on the neck of nelson mandela -- >> he said, let's forgive. let's forgive dick cheney. let's forgive
a continuation of the bush-cheney counterterrorism apparatus. i imagine dick cheney fly fishing on his boat somewhere in wyoming, you know, sort of having a good chuckle and saying, you know, thank god obama was president because the next time we're in power, we're going to be able to continue doing this stuff. >> host: jeremy scahill, how large is the drone program in the u.s. right now? >> guest: well, we have very little information about it. let's remember that for almost the entire first term that president obama was in office, he never publicly mentioned the drones except on a google plus hangout in response to a question that a young person had asked him. no u.s. officials would ever publicly own that the u.s. even had a drone program. an american citizen was killed in a drone strike, this guy anwar al-awlaki who was from the united states and went to yemen and was making these youtube videos, they killed him in 2011. 600 days later president obama gives a speech where he owns the fact that the u.s. is doing this. there are secret bases in saudi arabia, oman, in east africa. my under
's show, dick cheney, and mario lopez. we'll see you, everyone. >> that's a show. >>> and a fox extreme weather alert this morning. a deadly winter storm blasting western and southern states with frigid temperatures, snow, rain, sleet, and ice. you name it, they're getting it. the cold weather chaos. leaving icy roads and power outages. stretching from texas to the rockies, temperatures expected to reach only about 10 degrees today. in much of the midwest. the storms also causing massive flight cancellations across our country, as travel conditions are worsening by the hour, both in the air and on the roads. now, the storm is moving east. it's causing big problems all along the way, and we're going to bring you a full forecast and what you need to know before you leave the house today. you know who will do that for us, our own j.d. and more on that nasty storm system shortly, but we're going to begin now with new reaction to president obama's remarks at a forum on mideast policy yesterday. good morning, everyone. i'm jamie colby. great to have you along for this new hour of america's ne
as a terrorist group and dick cheney voted against a resolution to release nelson mandela so this was all happening around the world. >> right. i think peter's point that south africa's transition was facilitated by the end of the cold war is extremely important. but it's also extremely important to remember that in the 1980s, a global anti-apartheid movement arose during the cold war in which people in america and europe said we're not going to see south africa in purely cold arrest terms. we're not going to accept ronald reagan's -- the anc because we called ate communist organization. i think the willingness to look at south africa beyond cold arrest terms even when the cold war was raging in the neigh years. >> when you talked to nelson mandela, did you find that he -- had he forgiven the west for, you know, having mostly for the most part sided against the anc? >> i think in my conversations with him, he forgive the west, yes, and he realized that a huge amount of learnings we can pick up from western leaders and in deed we did pick up a huge amount of learnings. i think for example,
it just amounts to an acknowledgment of weakness. dick cheney would argue that if you threw them a scalp, the pack of wolves will get hungrier for another scalp." i am sure that that is the debate taking place in obama's mind right now, which is -- look , is this actually resolving anything? or is it simply acknowledging that we failed and emboldening the opposition? beyond the that politics, though, probably another thing that obama is thinking about that is the right thing to think about is the substance. ever mind politics, how did this happen? this was his signature domestic achievement. it was not a surprise, like hurricane katrina. it was a long planned event and the rollout was disastrous. something went wrong and someone is responsible for that. is in theat someone west wing, deep in the bowels of health and human services, whether it is secretary sebelius, i do not understand the problems well enough to know. someone is accountable, i would say, ultimately, and that in my view the president has to bear some of that accountability. he came with a lack of administrative experience
on a mechanical bull right behind us. >> come on. here we go. >> donald trump on tomorrow's show, dick cheney, and mario lopez. we'll see you, everyone. >> that's a show. >>> and a fox extreme weather alert this morning. a deadly winter storm blasting western and southern states with frigid temperatures, snow, rain, sleet, and ice. you name it, they're getting it. the cold weather chaos. leaving icy roads and power outages. stretching from texas to the rockies, temperatures expected to reach only about 10 degrees today. in much of the midwest. the storms also causing massive flight cancellations across our country, as travel conditions are worsening by the hour, both in the air and on the roads. now, the storm is moving east. it's causing big problems all along the way, and we're going to bring you a full
